Are there significant differences in the old Stanley Bailey hand planes that were made in the USA and those made in England? Also, did Stanley make Bailey planes in Australia, too?

I had a #4 made in the UK and the castings were heavier. The one
I have didn’t seem especially old to me.

Have your say...
